on tap at bar hop. welcome to ontario, stone. lightly tropical aroma consisting of mango, pine, and some grapefruit. taste follows the nose with a solid bitterness on the back end. hops are the showcase. not getting much malt flavour. medium mouthfeel, medium carbonation. a bitter and unbalanced but hoppy and delicious IPA

Appearance: nice golden and amazingly clear brew. It starts of with a decent fingernail length head and dissipates into a frothy thin lice that retains throughout.
Smell: initially did not detect much of an aroma. However, after a few sips I became aware of a sweet aroma that becomes more and more pronounced as the drink warms. Lots of fruity esters, particularly pineapple, bannana and pear.
Taste: the taste is, for me, quite a contrast to the aroma. Hardly any of the tropical fruit sweetness, instead, the bitterness of the hops hits you upon first taste and retains throughout. The finish is bitter and yeasty. There are also herbal, spicy and piney elements to the taste. If you are a hops head, this is the one for you. The only thing that I would have liked to see was for the sweet aroma to be more prominent in the taste and provide some balance to the hops.
Feel: smooth, creamy and drinkable.
Overall, a kick ass brew that I will seek out when I am specifically seeking hop bombs with little to no sweetness in the taste.
